A busy day is in store for Corne

labor activities in his country and
fervent speeches to workers here

from "plutes" to plodders.

aristocratic Woman's Partk of Cook

at 2 p. m. Tonight before a bunch
of regular machinists he will tell what
union labor did in Ireland. The meet

SHOW HOW PRICES SOARED AND
CAR MEN'S WAGES STOOD STILL
It costs as much for a street rail
way company employe to support
himself in a decent manner as it does
any other workman.
The car men feel that they are en
titled to have home and table things
as nice as their cousin workers enjoy.
They know they must deny them
selves many things which the work
ers in other trades can have.
The car men, through the arbitra
tion committee, are pleading for a
wage mor econsistent with the de
mands of the day. They are asking
why they cannot receive a wage that
wil Iput them on equal footing with
the workers of other trades. They
point out that prices have soared
away above their wage basis.
Maurice Lynch, financial secretary
of Division 241, Car men's union,
showed by table that the average Chi
cago union wage was about 50 per
cent higher than what the car men
are getting. The company protested
that building trades employes who
got from 65 to 75 cents an hour did
not work the year around. Lynch
replied that but 80 per 'cent of the
car men were on duty at a time.

MRS. O'CONNOR STILL MISSING,
FED. AGENTS ON LOOKOUT
This morning federal agents again
questioned William O'Connor, an
actor, as to the whereabouts of his
wife, who is known as Elsie Graham.
Teh O'Connors recently testified for
the government against Dr. A. L.
Blunt, who was indicted for conspir
acy to evade the Harrison act.
Shortly after the indictment was
returned O'Conor and his wife dis
appeared. They are the star witness
es for the government and federal of
ficers have been looking for them for
weeks. O'Connor was arrested last
night for jumping his bond. He has
refused to tell where his wife is stay
ing. Blunt claims to have cured more
than 650 people of the dope habit.
